      How to obtain perfect and clean cuts on vitrified, glazed and glass tiles using a wet tile saw?

      We frequently receive requests from our worldwide customers asking for a solution to cut vitrified and glass tileswith wet use diamond blades.
      The most common problem is that with standard blades for tiles, and also wet use blades, the finished cuts are less than perfect because the edges are often chipped, very badly in some cases!

      This problem is generally caused by the thin glass surface (less than 1 mm) placed on the top of these kinds of tiles.

      The mix between ceramic or gres porcelain and glass is very difficult to cut because the consistency of the material is not regular.
      Normally the standard blades available for cutting ceramic and gres porcelain are made with medium/big diamonds tips + a special metal bond but for cutting vitrified, glazed and glass tiles this type of diamond tools are not correct.

       

       

      For these kinds of vitrified tiles the diamond blade has to be composed with very small diamonds tips and another special metal bond that are able to cut the glass surface but at the same time create an excellent finished cut.
      If you want to see an example, we talking around these kinds of blades when we posted the article: Examples of finished cuts obtainable with our new wet saw – the ‘Tornado’>


      Soon we’ll prepare and post a video dedicate to this matter.
